Japan
This is it. There are two days until the class trip to Japan. This will be the first time I will have left the US. I will be living with a Japanese family for nine days.

I have never been less confident in my Japanese-speaking abilities; not even when I first started learning the language.

じゃあ、頑張ってね。ホストファミリーは、カナマさんが日本語を勉強しているのをよく分かってくれるから、時々間違っても大丈夫でしょう。日本人が外国人が日本語を話してみて間違ってしまった時よく笑うと聞いていましたが、それは文化のことだけだから、そんな時心配しないほうがいいでしょう。

私にも、一度日本へ行く気がありますが、専門は日本との関係が全然ないので、留学などあまりできなくて、ちょっと困ります。

Hopefully that wasn't too bad; I haven't actually used Japanese in a month or so. In case I did completely butcher that (and for anyone else reading) your host family realizes you're still just studying Japanese, so it'll probably be fine even if you do make mistakes. I also hear that Japanese tend to laugh a little when foreigners make mistakes speaking Japanese in Japan, but it's not out of any sort of ill-will; it's just in the culture. Personally, I'd like to go to Japan sometime, but my major really doesn't have any sort of connection to Japanese, so I can't exactly study abroad.

In any event, have fun!
